    If it follows the same pattern as previous years, it should be Tuesday, June 26, 2018.

    According to 46 CFR 310.57....

    (e)Reporting to the Academy. Candidates who accept offers of appointment shall, pursuant to instructions issued by the Academy, report to the Academy on a specified date in mid-July for orientation and induction.

    Indoc has started at the end of June for years now. The CFR hasn't been updated in quite some time.

    swrakow....yes...but you are missing the point of the post...the academy continues to demonstrate a failure to follow the regulatory law....per CFR they are also required to offer a dual license program and operate sea-year with equal 50% time at sea and in-residence....how can the school expect the students to follow the service obligation requirements when leadership does not for the CFRs. You change the regulation and then execute a new behavior.

    When you actually read 46 USC and 46 CFR, it is amazing to learn the actual operational requirements set by Congress and MARAD.

    Given the CG licensing requirements today, there's no way to obtain a dual license given the required courses and sea time. And they've never had 50% sea time to in-residence. The service obligations differ and the USC controls over the CFR all day, every day.

    WRT "50% sea time to in-residence", I mean for sophomore and junior year...the way it was before the start of the trimester system in academic year 98-99.

    46 CFR § 310.59 Courses of instruction.
    (a)At Academy. Three major curriculums are offered: Nautical Science, for the preparation of deck officers; Marine Engineering, for the preparation of engineering officers; and the Dual License Program, a combined course which leads to licenses in both specialties. All midshipmen who are citizens shall take naval science courses prescribed by the Department of the Navy. All curriculums include general education courses and electives.

    (b)Sea year. Midshipmen spend one-half of their sophomore (third class) year and one-half of their junior (second class) year training at sea aboard one or more merchant vessels. In addition to practical shipboard assignments, midshipmen are required to complete written study assignments incorporating material from the major segments of the Academycurriculums.
